In the U.S and Mexico

Cartels in Mexico.

The people of Mexico has been intimidated by the violent Drug Cartels. Many people around the world know about the War on Drugs that's taking place in Mexico and won't even travel to Mexico for their own safety. More than 60,000 people have been killed since 2006-2012. The United States and Mexico are being affected from smuggling drugs to innocent people being killed. In fact, members of the Cartels are already here in the United States. How does this violate Human Rights? Well, these Cartels recruit child soldiers as young as 11 years old, they torture people by be-heading them and dismembering them in the most gruesome ways. This takes away the freedom from the people because they are not longer at peace without worrying about being kidnapped or killed.

The Three Organizations Addressing this issue.

Obama's Administration, (Rico), and Mexican Soldiers and Police.

Barack Obama and the president of Mexico, Enrique Pena Nieto, are both working on busting the head of these drug cartels and finding out how these U.S weapons are entering Mexico. Many people believe that Obama and Enrique know more about this problem and are sending these guns out to Mexico and are making things worse. This is only a rumor at this moment. (RICO) Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act is a new United States federal law that increases penalties for those involved or committing crimes for the cartels. The Mexican soldiers and police are also working into keeping the country safe and make the people feel safe around their area. They are walking around with assault rifles just in case they get into a shoot out with the cartels.
